Jimmy Choo Spring ’22 shoe collection at Milan Fashion Week – Footwear News
“Two years can go by like this. It’s really taking time for the things that matter. It’s cherishing every moment that you have.
As Jimmy Choo Creative Director Sandra Choi pondered the lessons of the pandemic at Milan Fashion Week – the brand last hosted a presentation of women here in February 2020, just days before the city became one of the first hotspots of the coronavirus – the creator also envisioned Spring ’22, a season that she says will bring rebirth and renewal.
With that in mind, Jimmy Choo’s nature-themed outing featured bold and colorful styles displayed above tranquil pools of water.
“I remember sitting in my kitchen in the [English] countryside, when we were still fresh in the [pandemic] moment – and I saw my garden have this orchestra of colors and flowers and different movements in and out ”, she recalled. “It was never boring and it was so powerful. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or sunny. That kind of energy is powerful – and that’s what set the backdrop for what I wanted to do.
Rebirth is also a fitting theme for Choi’s updates to some of Jimmy Choo’s biggest hits. “I have some of these beloved styles, and I have injected color and playfulness into the finish and details,” she said, pointing to consumers’ favorite Lance sandal. “Lance got a squarer, more chiseled toe in conjunction with the straps, but the sexy side is still there. I like it.”
The biker boot has also joined the ranks of iconic Choo styles, and for spring, the brand is making it for the first time with biodegradable rubber as sustainability initiatives ramp up across the country.
Other highlights of the collection include the Sayta sandal – which features thick leather and metal D-studs – which gets an update with a floral-print silk scarf. (The pattern spans the casing and micro clutches.)
